I removed the Urban Cooling cover the other day and noticed that the injector fuel feed hose protective sleeve has been chaffing on the shroud bottom edge, see photo. It was through the sleeve and just marking the hose inside. I have heard of this happening on other M3W's, one found when the hose had worn through and caused a leak. I filed some of the plastic cover away and cable tied the hoses more to improve clearance. Worth a check if you are in that area.

SNAP!
Here are my pipes showing signs of chafing:

...and here is the lower edge of the cooling fan cowl before modification:

...and this is what it looked like after I had cut away material to clear the fuel lines.


I've just noticed some of those nasty crimp fuel line clamps too. Another job...

Hello

Great find. I must double check mine as well or modify the urban cooling if needed.
